Today, the Chelsea restaurant's opening for daytime meals, offering a good alternative to the nearby meatpacking district's all-you-can-puke brunch parties. Willow Road's serving lunch from Monday to Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and brunch from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m on weekends. The lunch menu includes healthy fare like the Twenty Greens salads, in which you can add gourmet "toss-ins" such as comté cheese and puffed wild rice (optional extras for any soup or salad). Over in the sandwich section, you'll find exotic varieties like a sea bass po' boy, French dip, and spiced lamb burger. For brunch, Willow's focusing on hangover-numbing classics: brioche French toast and cast-iron-baked eggs with chorizo. Check out the menus and some more sandwiches, straight ahead.
